The 2012 GQ Men Of The Year party was held at the Chateau Marmont in L.A. last night and as you can see above, the ladies took the black carpet quite seriously. Red means business and that’s the color a slew of stars decided to wear, as you can see above. And they all rocked red lipstick too, with the exception of Jenna Dewan who did a strong eye and neutral lip.She wore a tomato Amanda Wakeley dress with very sexy Christian Louboutin ankle-straps in the same shade. Brittany Snow wore a slinky vintage YSL dress with Jerome Rousseau heels. Then there was Rihanna who slayed them all in a very minimal strappy Calvin Klein mini dress and Manolo Blahnik sandals. Completing the red quartet was Jennie Garth and we don’t know who designed her peplum dress but it hugged every curve and made her look like a bombshell.
Monochrome didn’t fare as well as red sadly. Julianne Hough wore a Temperley London white suit that looked like something out of Saturday Night Fever. It also really needed to be hemmed as we couldn’t see her Brian Atwood shoes but at least her Roger Vivier gold clutch was cool. Rashida Jones — gorgeous woman that she is — got it all wrong by wearing a Marni top with a Band of Outsiders jacket, Giorgio Armani shorts, accessorizing with earrings by Dana Rebecca, Christian Louboutin shoes and bag, and rings and bangles by Crow’s Nest. It was just too much of a mish-mash and she looked squat, which she most definitely is not, due to those shorts. Diane Kruger went into weird avant garde territory by wearing a Cushnie et Ochs dress and Vanessa Bruno jacket which did not sit well, but her Jason Wu bag and Jimmy Choos were to die for. Cassie‘s Anthony Vaccarello gown looked like someone had a go at it with scissors but again, the Jimmy Choos were hot. Check out our gallery for all these looks along with all the other women who turned up. Favorites like Emily Vancamp (in a Reem Acra dress, and Brian Atwood heels,) Krysten Ritter (Dolce & Gabbana top and skirt) and Alessandra Ambrosio who was wearing a Sally LaPointe dress all made an appearance.
